About KAILE GOH
Kaile Goh gives pop an edge. On her forthcoming LAVA/ Universal Republic Records debut, the 15-year-old songstress infuses attitude into each and every tune she writes and sings.
Born in Singapore, Kaile spent her ﬁrst ﬁve years there before moving to Los Angeles. In L.A., she began modeling for Ford Modeling as a kid becoming a go-to face for Disney, Target, Kodak, Mattel, Sony, and others due to her innate, natural beauty and inimitable presence. With the money she made from modeling, she bought a Gibson Hummingbird guitar, which she still constructs all of her songs on.
The songs started pouring out of her at ten-years-old though. Kaile could barely fret the Hummingbird, but her mom would take her to local open mic nights where she would perform originals to stunned audiences of regulars. “Singing is something I never got bored of,” declares Kaile. “It’s what I was meant to do.”
In 2010, she landed a meeting with LAVA president Jason Flom. After playing three songs acoustically for Jason at The Beverly Hills Hotel, he signed her on the spot. Before she knew it, she was in New Jersey with producer David Bendeth [Paramore, Breaking Benjamin] recording her ﬁrst album. Drawing from inﬂuences as diverse as classic rock—The Rolling Stones and The Beatles—and Taking Back Sunday, she and Bendeth crafted a fresh and ﬁery sound. About working with Bendeth, she elaborates, “I wouldn’t have thought about things David suggested. It was incredible to watch him work. He preserved what I was doing but helped me reach the next level.”
